Sub against a Patio Door

Youngling Posts: 2 Join Date: 7/6/10 Recent Posts
For logistical reasons, it makes sense to put my 7070A in front of a Patio Door, which because of a step in front of the door, would put the front edge of the 7070A about 32" away from the glass, which according to the setup guide is too far from a "normal" wall boundary. However glass is not a good reflector of low frequencies (and though this glass is double-paned, it's residential), so it doesn't really qualify as a normal wall... or does it?

Is this a really bad idea? My 5.0 setup is against the patio door so that placement would roughly be the recommended one. I'd appreciate any helpful observations. TIA.
